It seems like it doesn't line up very well and now that the nerve block is completly worn off it hurts pretty good too.
I am supposed to be able to leave today but I have a hunch they will make me stay another day to get my pain managed by oral meds.
I like this hospital, they have internet in the waiting room, a full menu I can order all my meals from and lots of attendants. I haven't had to wait more than 30 seconds to get help when I push the button, even in the middle of the night.

it hurts pretty good

ouchie !! mine hurt pretty bad my surgeon performed arthroscopic knee surgery, he made small incisions, inserted a device and "sucked" out all the damaged cartilage..., TWICE!! i have about 30% of my born with cartilage, i was laid up for two days in the hospital then 45 days recuperating at home before returning to work.
that was 25 years ago. now i have little or no pain till the weather changes, then it hurts like hell for a few days.

just something to look forward to

...Hope you're all healed real soon. I don't mind a couple days in the hospital, but then it gets boring. The food is good, as long as I'm on an unrestricted diet. Always sneak in a salt shaker though.
...One time, I woke up in the Catholic hospital, and there was a priest giving me the last rights. I let him finish but told him that I wasn't going anywhere just yet. Hell of a way to wake up!

my stay was 3 days.
my knee felt the same way as you describe, crunchy. when i asked the doctor about it, he told me when the bone is sawed they just cant get all the bone dust. as time goes the feeling will change also.
watch eating to much all that pain medicine can constipate you. and you will have more problems

That's not exactly like my elbow injury but close? After tipping my bike my elbow became inflamed, ice and an ace bandage were applied, (first aid) after two days the swelling went down and the elbow set back in place. I wore the bandage for another day and bought a wrist strap to support the hand because lifting incurred slight pain? I felt good after a few days so, I took the bandages off and went to bed... I awoke to find that i've aggravated the injury and couldn't move my fingers? The doctor had to set the elbow and now my arms in a sling.

Wow only 30 seconds? That is above the norm. Nurses can be some lazy people.

Even sitting... I'll just swing the Ol'Legs up and the knees both pop like a fingers knuckle would...

I'm dreading the day they really start to hurt...

Back in May I knelt down to work on my motorcycle & my knee has been hurting ever since. Not nearly as much as the first few days but it won't go away. I had an MRI done last week & am waiting for the results.

I can't take any ibuprophin or aspirin because I am on cumeden now too.
the pain is getting alot better and I can walk gingerly around the house. the knee joint is still very loose but the nurse tells me that is normal. I have been doing the exercises so I can bend my knee to about 80 degrees and about 5% short of straightening it out.
I got my staples out and can take a shower so that feels really good.
It's still a few days till I see the doctor. I am looking forward to getting into PT.
Thats the update

I keep putting my knee surgery off. I'm gonna have to have a total right knee replacement.

It was scheduled for last March, but my work got in the way. Now, it looks like it might happen in Jan. or Feb.

I'd like to wait til closer to age 60, but other things are dictating differently.


The "ONLY" bad thing about owning "A GUN" is........not owning two or more!

When the dust settles and the smoke has cleared, it's not the firearm in hand that determines accuracy, but rather, the hand on the firearm.

my buddy had his done at 38 years old (he is now 52) he said it was the best thing he ever did and I can attest that his knee still works great. These are the results most people have and I think it's a shame doctors want us to wait til we are too old to enjoy the lack of pain.

Thanks to a massive leg injury when I was 6, I have no cartilage in my left knee, and a limited range of motion. I can walk, sit, and even manage a slow jog without issue, but can't run without limping and have had arthritis in that knee since I was 8, a taste of wonderful things to come when I'm older I'm sure. They tell me by the time I'm 40 or 50 I'll probably just need the knee replaced due to the steady bone on bone grinding over the years.

So yeah, crunchy knee, I feel your pain. Hope they get you fixed up.
